The future of Fintech is the subject of an exciting new event organised by Strathclyde Business School. It takes place on 2nd September 2016 from 10am - 4pm at the Technology & Innovation Centre, 99 George Street, Glasgow.


The financial services industry is being transformed by innovative, disruptive technologies. Last year saw £10bn invested globally in Fintech start-ups. The digitalisation of financial transactions has both commercial and regulatory implications and it impacts all aspects of capital markets from transactions, settlements through to fund raising. The symposium aims to demystify the technology and identify the opportunities that will arise.

Among the topics to be covered are Financial Challenges Driven by Technology, Digital currency: Business opportunities within blockchain technology, Regulatory challenges, a Venture Capitalist's view of investing in Fintech and the Future of Technology and Payments.

Supported by IFSD Glasgow and Scottish Financial Enterprise, the event will also feature the launch of the refreshed Skills Investment Plan for Scotland's Financial Services sector. It sets out a framework for the sector to fulfil its skills needs, with Fintech one of the themes at the heart of the plan.

Attendance is free. Registration is required https://www.sbs.strath.ac.uk/apps/fintech/ and any queries should be directed to daniel.broby@strath.ac.uk
